Refurbished Icon A5


I decided to take out a few of my rescued planes I refurbished and the Icon surprised me on its ground handling abilities

Here is mine next to my Eflite Icon. Not flown yet just waiting for a motor to arrive and for the COVID lockdown to end.

That looks great! Nice job. I printed a couple of them. But honestly, when I realized it's no good on water I shelved them. I never put the electronics in either. Also, I had difficulty sourcing the 5mm cube magnets to secure the canopy.

My plan was to use control rods for the tail surfaces and move the servos inboard, like the UMX Icon A5. Then I saw some YT videos of how awful it is on water. When I talked to the planeprint guy he said some people have tried, with varying degrees of failure, to use it off water. But admitted he wouldn't try it.

My flying field is a lake, so game over. They look nice hanging around the workshop.

Still flying my two vintage first gen Parkzone Icons (and the UMX) though. Fun planes. Nothing better out on the water.

All the best.
